Subject: Longer earlier version of the Herman's Hermits standard
A bit hoarser and less bouncy than the familiar HH version, but there's more verses and an intro here.

As someone else has said a great music hall song & a very good quality recording.

This song was also recorded by Joe Brown & the Bruvvers in the early 60's, who were managed by Brian Epstein & some years later the Hermin Hermits recorded it & it became a hit.

I have to disagree with CatfishBob's statement, The Beatles & The Hermin Hermits who were led by Peter Noone, were both popular in their own right, but totally seperate bands.

As we all know the Beatles were from Liverpool, while the HH were from Manchester. I wonder if catfishbob is thinking of the Archies who brought out a novelty record called Sugar,Sugar (but were never seen) which is believed to actually have been recorded by the Beatles.

In a way you're both right- "Herman's Hermits" is the name under which the Beatles recorded a number of novelty tunes (for contractual and other reasons). Voice prints confirm that the vocal on the 1965 recording was in fact made by one Peter Noone, the mysterious "ninth Beatle".

Herman's Hermits covered this song. Not the Beatles.

Uhh....Linh My? Herman's Hermits covered this music hall song.

5 stars for newly discoverd (for me) verses, wit and sound quality.

Well sung. Good quality recording for 1911. I'm not really a Beetles fan. For those who are this should be great.

Not my cup of tea. I still think it is worth 4 stars. I don't give five stars unless it is my cup of tea.
